Switzerland votes on expelling foreign criminals

A Swiss flag at the Euro 2016 qualifier between Switzerland and Slovenia at the St. Jakob park stadium in Basel on September 5, 2015Switzerland began voting in a referendum Sunday on whether foreign criminals should be automatically deported even for minor offences, after a far-right push to tighten the rules. Polling comes at a time when many European countries are hardening their attitudes to migrants after more than a million arrived on the continent last year. More than half of Swiss voters backed strengthening rules to automatically expel foreign nationals convicted of violent or sexual crimes in a referendum on the same topic six years ago.
